Bartz is usually described as a “simple wanderer”, as he has no real ambitions other than to explore the world. Despite this, he is fairly level headed and often stays away from trouble. If driven to conflict, Bartz and Boko will do anything in their power to protect their allies.

During Combat Bartz will avoid conflict if he can, but if not, he is usually the first to engage the enemy. Bartz uses his mobility on Boko to strike enemies while on the move. Bartz generally saves his challenge for enemies that could overwhelm him or the party. Bartz prefers to fight while mounted but if he can’t, he will fight side by side with Boko.
